  • Most of the time it's nothing, but sometimes it's cancer

CATS Cambridge, the Cancer Awareness in Teenagers and Young People Society, raises awareness among students of the University of the signs and symptoms of the most common cancer types in 18 to 25 year olds.

The Society aims to prevent the development of cancer in young people by encouraging members of the University to get any potential symptoms checked by their GP. We do this by running a number of awareness and fundraising events across the University. We have been established in Cambridge since 2015, as a branch of CATS – a UK-wide organisation founded in Manchester, which is a registered charity.
